Think about how many soundtracks have stuck out to you after seeing a movie. Forrest Gump (1994), for instance, has one of the best soundtracks of all time because the songs so appropriately aid the storytelling. Film series like The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Harry Potter feature musical scores that are so unique, they’re recognizable after hearing only a few measures of the title song. Music can help take an audience to a tangibly more emotional place, and the power of music in film should never be underestimated.

In the 1990s, many soundtracks featured a song from a popular artist at the time. In terms of marketing and advertising, Hollywood definitely had the right idea. The songs reminded people of the films, moviegoers bought the soundtracks, the movies could reach a whole new audience based on the artist’s fanbase, and more money could be made all around.

VH1 and MTV boomed with life and excitement (and yes, even music) at this time as well, so naturally the artists and filmmakers would create music videos featuring clips from the appropriate movies as an additional marketing tool. Below I have listed the five best (or, more accurately, the five cheesiest) music videos from movie soundtracks. Let me know in the comments if I missed one of your favorites!

Shania Twain – “You’ve Got a Way” (Notting Hill)

Julia Roberts, the queen of romantic comedies, starred in countless classic chick flicks from 1990-2000. It was a decade of giant smiles, contagious laughs, and corny lines that would sound absolutely heinous coming out of anybody else’s mouth.

In 1999 she starred alongside the almost-too-sensitive Hugh Grant in Notting Hill. If you have not seen Notting Hill, let me just say that it is literally everybody’s fantasy playing out on screen. Basically, ever since seeing it, I have been dreaming of turning a corner and spilling orange juice all over Johnny Depp so we can fall in love.

To accompany this fairy-tale love story, Shania Twain, the queen of cheesy-yet-somehow-still-lovable music videos, performs “You’ve Got a Way” for the film. The typical Shania Twain music video antics combined with the song itself create probably the cheesiest three minutes ever caught on film.

The Proclaimers – “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” (Benny and Joon)

Sadly, even some self-proclaimed Johnny Depp fans have never seen Benny and Joon (1993), and this quaint little love story is often overlooked in discussions of Depp’s incredible career. But it shouldn’t be. Depp and co-star Mary Stuart Masterson both beautifully capture the quirky innocence of those deemed mentally ill by society, and Depp’s Buster Keaton-esque character thrives with a passion for living life on his own terms.

Aside from the great acting and a cute storyline, this movie launched the lovably upbeat “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” into every American’s radio. The video parallels the film in both light-heartedness and social awkwardness. I mean, look at those glasses.

Goo Goo Dolls – “Iris” (City of Angels)

Nothing says over the top like Nicolas Cage. We all know it, and before you even dare deny it, let me just say that we all love it. He epitomizes overly dramatic acting and irrational reactions. Apart from his typical quasi-action typecast, which normally includes something paranormal as to somewhat ease the audience into accepting Cage’s outlandish behavior on screen, he occasionally delves into the romantic comedy. Most notably, he played a love-struck angel alongside Meg Ryan, rom-com actress extraordinaire, in City of Angels (1998).

The film will forever be one of the best, and most tragic, romance movies of the late-90s, and appropriately, from this great drama came one of the greatest hits from the sentimental Goo Goo Dolls. Yep, “Iris,” that love song you adore, came from a Nicolas Cage movie. How does that make you feel? Honestly, it most likely makes you feel precisely how the end of the movie does — filled with grief.

Seal – “Kiss From A Rose” (Batman Forever)

Alright, Christopher Nolan. Your Batman movies depict a dark, hopeless, awful Gotham that has a hero it deserves. Hans Zimmer composed the scores, helping solidify the films as wonderful works of art, Oscar-winner Christian Bale plays the mysterious billionaire Bruce Wayne, and Morgan Freeman even snuck his way into the series. Kudos.

But you don’t have “Kiss from a Rose,” and that will always prevent your movies from being perfect. This music video illustrates the wonderfully campy Batman that I personally miss very much. Batman Forever (1995) may not have been Oscar-worthy, but Jim Carrey played a fantastic Riddler, and Nicole Kidman looked beautiful. So there’s that.

Whitney Houston – “I Will Always Love You” (The Bodyguard)

Many people forget that the late Whitney Houston covered this Dolly Parton classic for her movie The Bodyguard (1992). The young songstress, then in her prime, starred in this wonderful drama alongside her on screen bodyguard, Kevin Costner, also in his prime after starring in everyone’s favorite baseball movie, Field of Dreams (1989).

Although Houston may not have been a trained actress, her emotion has always shone through in her songs, making the music video for “I Will Always Love You” arguably even more emotionally jarring than the film it came from.
